Founded in 2008, the Band of the High School Attached to Xi’an Jiaotong University has received a lot of attention from the China National Symphony Orchestra and Xi’an Good Instructor Recital & Arts Centre and became an up-rising star among the high school concert bands. Our band now includes 75 band members. It consists of a combination of brass, woodwind and percussion.

We were honored to have Zhao Jiping (president of the China Musician Association, president of Xi'an Conservatory of Music) and Zhao Baoping (the head of Orchestral Instruments Department in Xi'an Conservatory of Music) as our permanent advisers and to have professor Zhang Guoqiang (Orchestral Instruments Department in Xi'an Conservatory of Music) as our art director and professor Hou jie as our conductor. With the guide of each professor and the great effort of the students, the band has made impressive progress.

We take part in artistic performances in school actively and have outstanding achievements in all kinds of competitions and activities, which bring us unanimous critical acclaim and praise from provincial and municipal experts.
In the future, we will emphasize on study and communication, and improve our performing skills and levels in order to play more beautiful musical notes.
